Big Picture: Birth of a Tank
DVD copied by Katie Filbert. Department of Defense. Department of the Army. Office of the Deputy Chief of Staff for Operations. U.S. Army Audiovisual Center. (ca. 1974 - 05/15/1984). Regularly each year, the American public looks forward to the first showings of the new models by the country's automobile manufacturers. Not as often, perhaps, but awaited more eagerly by the Armed Forces is the appearance of a brand new combat vehicle. THE BIG PICTURE tells the inside story, from the idea to the fighting weapons, of the birth of a tank.

Really interesting documentary about the creation of the M48 Patton tank. I very much enjoyed watching this (and particularly enjoyed seeing some of the laboratory equipment that appears during part of the episode).
